^Never understood why Mamoru Chiba, of all people would wear a tuxedo during the middle of the day. If there's one both the 90's anime and PGSM did right, it's having him in a casual outfit.

Well, S1 was trash, but S2 is just unbearable to me.
Not only the designs managed to get fuglier, and animation remained crap, but the writing and characterization of the main cast got worse as well.
Season 1 had at least a couple exciting episodes, mainly the ones introducing the new guardians. But season 2 is just consistently boring and ugly looking.
Season 3 tho :love:

I voted for Season 1, too. Mainly because of all the character moments being removed and Usagi commiting suicide in the present!


Usagi committing suicide is already part of the story!
But if it were me, I’d write that a bit differently

...like having Endymion strike her down and have her be force to kill him.
Heheh.

I’d love this too, actually. I dug it a lot when it happened in Buffy.

The first two seasons were pretty much equally horrible. My feelings are summed up by this image.

^ You might replace "Crystal" in both logos w/ "trash," then replace "Season III" in the latter logo w/ "light." :lol:

I actually enjoyed season 3. I honestly think Chibi-Usa looked like her actual age in this art style than the one used in seasons 1 & 2.

This made somewhat more sense in the DiC dub of the 90s anime where they changed it so that Darien was a part time model.

Season 1, there's no contest really. There's so many bad things about it, its just sad.

To be fair not all was bad. There are things that i genuinely enjoyed, First episode is really good. It made me cry watching it. It also left me hopeful for the rest of the season. Episode 2 - even though the animation took a nosedive immediately - i really loved writing wise. They took a rather underwhelming manga chapter and changed it into a fine episode. That was also a proof they can make good changes and additions, that not every change to the manga is bad. Despite them cutting out most of the comedy from the manga i still enoyed it. The music was just gorgeous. I also enjoyed how at the beginning every episode had a small hint what will happen next time. This made me think they had this all very well planned and developed for the whole series. How wrong i was...

Sadly thats where most positives end. What went wrong though?

We've been waiting really long for a new SM anime. Then it was finally announced and yet we still needed to deal with a year long delay. Finally when it happened the animation quality turned bad immediately after 1st episode. The writing quality also went bad after episode 5. There's so many bad writing moments, i wont even bother to list them because we went through them way too many times already. Its just shocking that despite Toei sitting on 20 year old manga and adapting it chapter by chapter, nearly page by page they still couldnt do it right.

And again not every change was bad: for example unlike most people i didnt mind Toei swapping Minako for Usagi for killing Beryl. To me Usagi made much more sense unlike Minako who never was portrayed as a person who hated Beryl more than the others or having any personal reasons to kill her. There was no build up to it at all: neither in the manga or Crystal. So Usagi killing Beryl wasnt a bad change. Its HOW she killed her thats bad about the change. Thats scene was ridicoulous.

I'll also agree that Dark Kingdom in the manga is one of the weakest arcs but certainly Crystal only amplified the bad things even more (i love Usagi-Mamoru relantionship in the manga but hearing Usagi screaming "mamo-chan" x1000 was unbearable).

Luckliy its only getting better after episode 13.
